Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.. 1Peter 5:8.
Yes!!! the devil...satan...is out there, and yes he is your enemy, and yes he is working 24 hrs a day every single day of the week with his army to take anyone down whether christian or not. Especially if your a christian. Understand--your a christian--your saved, and you will remain that way forever. The evil one knows this, and yet continue his attacks on you, so he can blow holes in your faith, and your walk....blowing holes in your chance to witness to the lost, and help save their life.
The devil has many tricks of his sleeves (temptations) or minefields laid out to blow holes in your walk with Christ. Things like Porn, drugs, cheating on your spouse, or even sex with the same sex 1 Corinthians 6:9 or even just being drunk Proverbs 20:1. These are serious and easy spotters, how about these: ,loving the world more than God, Christians arguing with each other, judging each other Romans 16:17.
These minefields are dangerous. Just as dangerous for Believers as well as non -believers----if we get blown open in a minefield, then we cant help those who don't even know they exist. The Bible tells us to do all we can not to let our fellow Christian Soldier fall 1Corinthians 8:13. It also tells us Soldiers we do great service to our King, the cause, and the person who steps in the minefield when we help pull them out of there, and help patch them up James 5:20.
All of you be Mindful of the Minefields. They are there...little ones and big ones. The evil wants to take you down. Soldiers use your sword Hebrews 4:12...your bible...know it...it will save you from these minefields..when you see a fellow soldier or the lost fall on one--don't judge them....save them....remember the war is won by Jesus...we still need to get as many lost off the battlefield as possible, and watch either others backs on those minefields.....
Pray 4 one another always 1 Thessalonians 5:17
